the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin
on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this race. and also for the first time you're going to have them be able to make a direct side-by-side comparison. remember, at the end of the day, campaigns are about the candidates. and they're going to be able to see the two candidates next to each other, debating each other, and governor romney i know will do a great job on wednesday night laying out his vision for america's future and making the contrast between he an
to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. >> trust me when i tell you there was not a dry eye in the house after that moment. and by way of introducing my friends here in the booth with us, as you see gabby giffords and her astronaut husband watching on, you know, savannah guthrie is here, david gregory, chuck todd. savannah, as a fellow arizonan, something who knows something of the recovery process for this member of congress, you and i were there in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. the word herculean keeps coming up. >> when you see her walk out there, it was a labored walk but there she is. when you think about what she went through, being shot point blank in the head, it's amazing. from what my impression is of her recovery, to be able to say the pledge of allegiance from memory was an incredible feat of strength. as you mentioned, there really wasn't a dry eye in this room. >> your expectations for this evening? you and i were talking during "nightly news" about th
the globe. it is right here in the united states, the world's first on the combined eye transplant and research center. >> it opened in 1973. today, by uniting the world's largest i bank and a cutting edge research center, it is the global leader in ocular science. this man is the visionary and ceo, leading his team with a critical mantra. >> we don't want them to spend time and energy waiting six months down the road to find out that the project is not a success. what is taking three or four months other places, we can determine in less than a week. >> breakthroughs come faster as well, and here is why. they just expanded sleeping quarters on site. researchers from all over the united states and abroad can stay here and immediately study donated i to shoot before it breaks down. some 50,000 men, women, and children around the world have their sight back because of the institute and the game changer who started his career as a collector, working with families of donors. knowing that the gift will change another person's life is what drives his passion. >> they don't know who we are

these united states. >> the re-election is launched 60 days from now, americans will go to the polls. the incumbent president just charged up his crowd again. as valerie jarrett told us just before the broadcast, the senior white house adviser, this is not '08, this is a different man, a different year, tempered. "the new york times" this morning said he was a humble president, perhaps more conservative. we are indoors, after all, tonight. turns out to have been a clear night here in charlotte, but a preponderance of caution. right now democrats are threatening to make this an open-air arena. savannah guthrie and i have moved down to the floor. we have been told we are under threat of confetti cannons, so we'll stay low. the obama daughters, first lady have joined him up on stage. savannah, your initial marks on the speech. >> i think we have just heard the 2012 version of hope and change. i was told by an adviser before this speech that it wasn't going to be about barack obama, it wasn't going to be about mitt romney, it would be about the american people. clearly that's the message
of the united states. it made us proud as americans to know that those prejudices that we've had in the past are falling away. >> beyond some of the more personal areas, we sat down at campaign headquarters the next morning for more detailed discussion about where governor romney stands on the key issues of the campaign. so governor, we talked last night about jobs and the economy and also the debt. i want to begin there. you've called the debt and our deficit a moral crisis and yet in addition to extending the bush tax cuts you want to cut tax rates an additional 20%. you've rejected a 10-1 spending ratio when it comes to spending to increasing taxes. and yet you want to balance the budget. the math simply doesn't add up, does it? >> actually it does. five different economic studies including one at harvard, princeton, aei and a couple at the "wall street journal" all show that if we bring down our o top rates and go across the board, bring down rates for everyone in america, but also limit deductions and exemptions for people at the high end, you can keep the progressivity in the code, rem
two oil producing state in the united states. they just announced they have 42 times, not 42%, natural gas in ohio as they thought they did a year ago. i mean, just the drive of the energy sector under a romney administration generates in royalties, in taxes on new jobs and taxes on profits a major step towards the balanced budget. now you've got to control spending. paul ryan would be about as good a vice president as you could get if you wanted to have somebody. i mean, he will know more about the budget than the director of the budget. >> quick comment, and then i've got to go to a break. >> i'm all for exploiting our natural gas. it's incredible bounty. but if we don't do it as a bridge to a cleaner energy future we're going to burn up, choke up, heat up, smoke up and melt up this planet. far faster than even al gore predicts. >> all right. we're going to take a break here. i want to come back and talk a little bit about a big issue as we go into the democratic convention. gender politics. it was certainly big for the republicans. it will be big for the democrats as well. our polit
way, the good people of san antonio willing to the united states congress! my family's story isn't special. what's special is the america that makes our story possible. ours is a nation like no other, a place where great journeys can be made in a single generation, no matter who you are or where you come from, the path is always forward. america didn't become the land of opportunity by accident. my grandmother's generation and generations before her, always saw beyond the more horizons or lives and circumstances. they believe opportunity created to day would lead to prosperity tomorrow. that's the country they envisioned and that's the country they helped build. the roads and bridges they built, the schools and universities they created, the rights they fought for and won, these opened the doors to a decent job, a secure retirement, the chance for your children to do better than you did, and that's the middle-class, the engine of our economic growth. with hard work everybody ought to be able to get there. and with hard work, everybody ought to be able to stay there. and go beyon
union itself. we have a very unusual situation in this united states, it relates not just to the teachers unions, but more broadly. i don't mean to be terribly partisan but i am. in the case of democratic party, the largest contributors to the teachers unions are the democrats. allowing teachers to strike on matters such as their compensation, i think is a right that exists in this country. but i do believe we have to have a recognition of the person sitting across the table is representing the public and the students, not the teachers union. >> another issue that came out of chicago, governor, what portion of the teachers' salaries should be connected to test stores. >> i think there should be some connection between the capacity of the teachers to move students from grade level to grade level to their compensation. there were some teachers that regularly moved virtually all of their students a full grade level or more. and there were other teacher s that were unable to do that. in my opinion, the teachers that are able to do that should be paid more. >> the cost of a ful
crisis and leadership throughout the middle east that is morphing into a rage against the united states. i think it is here. and from a pure political point of view, this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could essentially be put away as there's more after focus on the economy and contrasting president obama with governor romney. now this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play and here come those presidential debates to really hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack trying to politicize. has it resonated beyond the republican base? >> well, we don't know yet. we'll test that out over time as we look at polling and as these two debate one another. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more on the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so much criticism for his statements this week criticizing the president even before all the facts were known and in the immediate wake of the
for the president and next president of the united states, barack obama. >> in a surprise appearance president obama joined clinton on stage. vice president biden did a late night walk-through. his speech and all today's convenients move inside this. severe weather dampening the democrats' final day. and we're still waiting to see what changes may happen here as a result of all of that, trying to now accommodate as many as they possibly can. thousands more people than this arena can hold. lynn? >> all right. tracie potts for us there in charlotte. trac tracie, thank you. >>> the secret service says it is investigating the reported theft of mitt romney's income tax returns. the tax documents were allegedly stolen from an accounting office in tennessee. an anonymous letter to romney's accountants asked for $1 million. they say there's no evidence that anything was taken. romney has refused to make public more than two years of his taxes. >>> a fwed real judge in arizona has cleared the way for the most contention of the arizona immigration law. on wednesday a u.s. district court judge refused to ban t

-islam internet movie made in the united states that washington has publicly and repeatedly denounced. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. >> reporter: the protesters aren't listening to that. authorities in cairo are erecting new walls around the embassy to prevent mobs from getting close, evidence in concrete of the growing divide between washington, cairo and beyond. there have been demonstrations against the offensive video in 11 countries so far. half of them in places where washington supported arab spring uprisings that toppled strong men who had formerly been u.s. allies. the arab spring has taken a dark turn. in yemen on thursday, protesters managed to break into the parking lot of the embassy in sanaa, destroying vehicles, smashing windows and even using a forklift to do more damage. no embassy staff was hurt. entering this volatile region now, the pope, leaving rome today for a previously scheduled visit to lebanon. so far there hasn't been any violence there. but today is friday, the mu

around 6:00 on tuesday morning, saying in part, the united states condemns the hurting of the religious muslims, the statement issued on the anniversary of the 9/11 attack was intended to distance the u.s. from the video that it angered protesters in libya and egypt and led to romney's first criticism, which then triggered this reaction from the obama administration. we are shocked that at a time of the death of one of our officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch an attack. this morning, romney faced questions about the timing of the criticism. >> do you think coming so soon really after the events unfolded overnight was inappropriate to weigh in as the crisis was unfolding in real time? >> the white house issued a statement saying they tried to distance themselves, saying they didn't reflect their views. i had the exact same reaction. the views were european. the -- that was a mistake, i believe that when a mistake is made of that significance, you speak out. >> reporter: some republicans criticized mr. romney's timing. >> i don't feel that mr. romney is doing himself

ties with israel by now, could have cut off all intelligence cooperation with the united states. none of that has happened. it's important at a difficult time like this to bear in mind where things could have gone in a much more negative direction. it's been a terrible week for the united states, but i'm still hopeful about a lot of the arab spring. we've got to navigate some tough times right now, and syria remains a huge mess. but if you ask me how things are compared to how i would have guessed a year ago, probably better than i would have surmised. >> the u.s. still controls pursestrings in as much of the foreign aid to that part of the world. will that allow the u.s. to continue to exert some influence? >> absolutely. i think president morsi knows this in egypt. it's part of why he's sensitive to the fact that his initial reaction to this video. however understandable at a religious level is inappropriate at a political level, at a leadership level. i'd like to hope he would have figured this out on his own, but it's nice to have $1.5 billion worth of leverage on our side. >> chu
